War in the Time of COVID-19: Armenia attacks Azerbaijan. Again.

It has been almost 30 years, but the pain and suffering I endured at the hands of my captives and torturers is something I will never forget; something that I live with every day of my life. So it is particularly painful for me to watch the news every day and to see that my country Azerbaijan is once again being brutally assaulted by the same invaders that imprisoned me, tortured me, and left me so damaged that I have required multiple spinal surgeries to recover and live today as a mother, a voice for survivors and an advocate for justice.

Thanks to the outpouring of support and solidarity, e

Russia Today, Sputnik head accuses Armenian gov't of being anti-Russian

Margarita Simonyan, head of the Russia Today TV channel, which many call the mouthpiece of Russian propaganda, accused the Armenian authorities of anti-Russian sentiment on July 18. She reminded them of the “Janissary knives” used against them by the Ottoman Empire, and demanded they show gratitude to Russia.

In Armenia, this post caused a heated discussion, and to a large extent, people reacted with outrage and indignation.

On her Telegram channel, she said that she was responding to numerous requests that she “determine her position” on the events happening on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border.

Armed clashes involving tanks and artillery on the border between Tavush in north-eastern Armenia and the Tovuz district in Azerbaijan since last Sunday threaten to provoke all-out war. At least 12 soldiers, including a major general and a colonel, and one civilian from Azerbaijan are dead, as are four soldiers from Armenia. Many others are wounded.

After a dangerous China-India border clash last month, this is further confirmation that the COVID-19 pandemic has intensified geo-political conflicts all over the world.

Armenia and Azerbaijan Clash Again

The on-again, off-again conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the border region of Nagorno-Karabakh became hot again on the weekend of July 11. Skirmishes are common in the contested region, which is known as Artsakh to the Armenian side, but this recent round of deadly attacks is the most serious escalation since the Four Day War in 2016 and is outside the typical point of contact. As usual, international calls for restraint and a diplomatic solution have been voiced, but internal politics between the two sides continue to amplify their serious disagreements. It seems as though the situation will continue to escalate, but the current circumstances are unlikely to spark a full-scale confrontation.
